Thank you ! If anyone out there can help I would greatly appreciate it. I know I'm an odd duck up until 2 days ago the only air sacred I could see was at the big end ... now I have one at each end is it possible the baby has moved around ?, and I am incubating this egg myself.....

Hi! Glad you joined us!

I suspect what you are seeing in the pointed end is just clear fluid, not really an air sac. Until the fill the whole egg, it's normal to have some fluid in the pointed end. But it should fill it up very soon.
If it doesn't, it may not be an issue, but you could have a very gooey duckling when it hatches. Just make sure its bill, eyes, and nares are not full of the goo. It will harden, but the duckling will remove most of it himself.

:welcome

G'Day from down under Lildsc :frowWelcome!

Sorry, I know nothing about ducks except that they are cute and quack but WVduckchick knows her stuff :clap

I just wanted to say that I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. There are some down the bottom of the page which are duck specific.

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
